Walk to School Day

Walk to School Day LogoInternational Walk to School Day occurs in early October every year, although the entire month of October is Walk to School month. Many schools choose to start a Safe Routes to School Program by planning a Walk to School Day event. Schools are encouraged to hold more than one Walk to School Day each year. Students who live close to school can meet and walk from home. To involve students who live farther away, a meeting place such as a park or library near the school is selected so students can meet staff and volunteers there and walk together as a group to school. Incentives such as orange slices, bookmarks, pencils, or stickers reward students who are walking and build enthusiasm for walking to school.
